Fat Busting: G-Man



  • Morning all

    Well I have started the gym this morning! Yay  :happy:.

    My current weight is 133.8 kg, height is 1,93m. My target weight is 90 kg. ETA is about 6 months.

    Well my current aim is to loose the fat first. So my routine for the next month is jogging, cycling and rowing, with some situps and pushups at the end of the work out session.

    Today started on a 5 km jog and I am feeling quit well, did a 10 min cycling and 20 min rowing. I know tomorrow I am going to suffer but I know it will be for the best in the long run. With diabetics and heart problems in the family it's time to look after myself.

    For brekkie I had oats, an apple and a peach with a cup of rooibos (redbush) tea. Luckliy I'm not concerned with sugar since I grew up with both the parents being diabetics.

    Well that's all for now I shall try to type tomorrow morning, if my arms will alow it  .



  • Welcome aboard G-Man. A couple of comments:

    At 6'5" you'll be mighty skinny at 90kg Being underweight is also not healthy for you, and if you turn sideways you'll disappear

    Note also that healthy weight loss is about 1kg a week too so you might want to tweak your goals a bit...

    :2funny: this is exactly what I say to my painfully thin brother. He just tells me to fuck off.

    Oh, and welcome G-Man. You'll get lots of encouragement and motivation here. Or in Captain Millers case, some thinly-veiled abuse if you show slackness. :shifty:

    Thank you,

    well like I said before I did weigh in at 90kg in 1999/2000 and I didn't look to bad at all and I wasn't underweight either. According to all the stats and programs I am suppose to weigh in at 83 kg. Not a chance in hell. I will keep it at 90kg with the cholestrol down as well.



  • Fuck the stats and programs - you're a veldt boy!

    I guess I could never see myself back at 90kg because I'm quite chunky at 6' and currently 113kg - very broad build compared to a mate of mine who is an inch taller but 75kg....



  • yeah, those height weight things are full of shit man!  I should be something like 7 foot 6 for my weight....



  • To lose 40 kg's in 6 mths you'll be putting on so much muscle mass that it won't work.  You'll be adding weight. Bart's tape mesure is the trick. I'm paying less attention to the scales and more to the notches I'm coming in on my belt.

    Good luck though. Tough target means you'll be even more chuffed  as you go.

    One thing I've done in the past (although not this time) is graph my weight loss.  Spounds stupid, but good way to self motivate as you can dr the scale to make it seem as if you're making good progress.



  • I agree, I started to get a bit demotivated when the weight wasn't coming down until I noticed I had alsmot come in two belt notches. Got the tape measure out and am going on that now.



  • Morning

    I agree what you guys are saying, will take the tape out asap. I have noticed that since I'm eating correctly I've allready went a notch down on the belt. I will keep an eye on the scale as well. For some reason when I do practice my weight does go down constantly and never stays on one spot.

    Anyways did a 6km run today and 5min on the rowing and feeling great today. A little sore from the rowing, but not as bad as I thought.

    Lunch yesterday was a mixed tuna salad and dinner was 2 buns with Italian cold meats.

    This mornings brekkie was oats and an apple and banana.

    Slowly starting to feel great again.



  • Morning from Jelly, a.k.a G-ManÂ

    Did a 5km run this morning plus 10 min rowing, with some crunches, situps and pushups. Today I can really feel the effect on my body, sore but not painful. Yet I allready feel my belt is becoming loose and clothes are getting looser.

    Brekkie this morning was oats, an apple and pear. Will see what's for lunch today.



  • Well done G Man, keep it going.Â



  • I can now really feel the rowing taking effect on my shoulders and neck, pain is starting, but like the old saying goes, no pain no gain. I am really looking forward to the day I can put on my old Levi's again. 😁

  • I prefer to think of it as "Pain is just pain entering the body"

    It better just leave quickly!



  • Morning

    Well the pain has subside alot and I feel much better today. Did a 6km jog, 20 min bike and 5 min rowing. Brekkie was Kellog's Hi-Fibre bran with banana sliced in it, very nice.

    I have put a fillet in the slow cooker stuffed with garlic, rosemary and nutmeg and dosed with a good helping of olive oil, with some sweet corn and peas. Fillet has no fat on it, and the sweet corn I add a teaspoon off frutose, a very good substitute for sugar. Should be very nice.



  • Morning

    Well another 6km jog and I felt great afterwards, also did my first 1km rowing  👏, and then the usual situps and pushups. After my shower putting on my pants I noticed that the pants are getting bigger. Got some space between the gut and pants, nice.

    Fridays the gym offers brekkie, so had a bowl of muesli with low fat strawberry yougurt and a croissant.

    Have a nice weekend and enjoy the rugga. Speak Monday again.



  • You too G-Man. Looks like its already starting to pay off



  • Morning all

    Well had a restfull weekend, played some PS2 the whole weekend. Watched the Cats vs. Reds game, 20 min left I decided fuck it the boys aren't going to make it, so played PS2 further. I played "God of War" and everytime I imagine myself seeing Frans Ludericous as the enemy  :evil:.

    Anyways weighed in this morning at 131,1kg. So that is 2.7kg down in the first week  👏. Mostly water I would think.

    Well did 6km run, sprinted the last 30 sec., impressed with myself that I could that on the end and did normal situps and pushups as well.

    Lets see if my body goes into shock this week and stay on the same weight.



  • Morning

    Nothing much to report on that I did the usual 6 km jog and 5 min (1km) rowing and situps and pushups. Will see what is for brekkie this morning.
